We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Lyndahl Funeral Home
Robert Joseph Peot entered God’s embrace on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. He passed away peacefully, in his home, surrounded by his family.
Born in Green Bay on April 21, 1935, he was the son of the late Robert and Leone Peot (Heim). Growing up on the Peot Family farm in Suamico, enjoying farming, riding his horses, and going duck hunting.
Bob graduated with the class of ‘53 from Central Catholic High School, completed 4 years in the ROTC and attended St. Norbert to study engineering. He united in marriage to his love, Melodee (Casper), on June 18, 1955. Bob and Melodee shared 67 years together and had a wonderful life filled with much love and many motorcoach adventures. Some of the happiest days of his life were spent creating memories with his three children, Cindee, Pennee and Michael.
Bob started his career working for his father-in-law at Suamico Machine & Tool proceeding onto Paper Converting, both of which he took great pride in. In 1970 Bob chased after his dream to start his own business and together they built a construction business, Peot Construction & Trucking Inc. that started in their garage and continued to grow until his retirement in 2004. A business he truly loved, and he was so proud of his great employees. He often said the employees were the reason for his success. Many may remember the light blue dump trucks! For years he was involved in the development of the Suamico Sanitary District.
Bob’s greatest love in life was his family and when we heard the name, Bobby, we knew his sisters were around!! Bob took so much pride in his children and grandchildren. They brought him joy and laughter.
Bob spent his free time with family and friends, traveling in his motorcoach, hunting trips with his family and buddies and morning breakfast with the guys! He worked hard and played hard. Many memories were made at his cottage on Legend Lake where he enjoyed working in his yard, entertaining, skiing, boat rides and countless hours pulling tubers around the lake!
Snowmobiling was one of Bob’s favorite winter pastimes. Many many miles were traveled with his brother Dennis. They traveled a lot of trails together along with family and friends.
He leaves behind his beloved wife Melodee. Two children and their spouses: Pennee (Russ) Chrisman, Michael (Cindy) Peot & Nick Van De Yacht (son in law). Eight grandchildren: Nick (Mary Ellen) Van De Yacht , Jessie Van De Yacht, Carrie (Chris) Schriel, JJ (Cassandra) Margitan, Aimee (Nick) Dorsey, Alyssa Chrisman, Jake (Julie) Peot, Jesse (Lauren) Peot. 14 great grandchildren: Logan, Alyana, Rhiana, Caleb, Cullin, Peyton, Ethan, Jace, Ryker, Kinlee, Jada, Vivinna, Rhett and Levi. Siblings: Jane White, Jean Peot and Gail Peot (sister-in-law). He was welcomed into heaven by his daughter Cindee, his parents, mother and father-in-law, Dan & Jessie Casper, brother Dennis Peot and brother-in-law Richard White.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Dr. John Kiser, Hospice caregivers, and most of all to our mom, Melodee as she lovingly cared for our father which allowed dad to remain in his home so the family could spend the time visiting and continuing to create more memories.
He will be deeply missed and will forever be in our hearts and thoughts. We love you!
